Fountain of 30

I wanted this one in green, but they only had giant sizes left and it was a men’s anyway.

This is half bad fashion and half confession so I consider this off-topic.

A few things about me that are not widely known (until now):

  • I am a music freak (my father always said "if you knew your studies the way you know music, you could have gotten into Harvard on scholarship…hmm).
  • I am a byproduct of the 80’s
  • I had a giant crush on Stewart Copeland, the drummer of The Police, in the early 80’s (we are talking epic)
  • I used to have a massive concert t-shirt collection which I never really wore and rid myself of years ago
  • I became a spin instructor solely because I hated the music instructors were subjecting me to listen to that I found boring, trite and unmotivating
  • I saw The Police Reunion Tour last night
  • I bought a Police t-shirt for $40

I know, I know. I, who says, you have to be a moron to buy a t-shirt for over $20, eagerly threw down $40 on a Police t-shirt last night at Giant Stadium. What can I say? I got sucked into the moment.

My $40 Police t-shirt

Last year I said if The Police reunite, I will give my right pinky to go. Didn’t they announce their tour a few weeks later? I think I’m psychic. Anyway, the concert was amazing (Copeland amazed on the drums as did Summers on guitar) and I still have my right pinky!  I also have this t-shirt, so if you see me walking down the streets of Manhattan with it on…you have every right to raz me for being a groupie and sporting an over-priced t-shirt that won’t score me points on any best-dressed list.

The Police now, who says older isn’t better?

– Signed, a groupie (I still love ya Stewart, you rock!).

  1. Are you and I separated at birth? Crush on Stewart (which I admit to still having), crappy spin music, promise to give up a body part in return for a tour, … only I bought the brown girly shirt at the first Wrigley show in July. I think I’ve worn it about 8 times in the intervening month. Some things are more important than fashion faux pas!

    Lynne,
    OMG! We really are! What’s your Dad’s name! Just kidding. I still have a crush on Stewart Copeland but, shhhh, my husband is a little sensitive about it. Agreed, sometimes a fashion faux-pas wins. But, I feel if you know it’s bad, it cancels it out. Sorta like eating standing up voids the calories.
    I’m wearing my pea green t-shirt now. Proudly! 🙂
